Cruising the South Coast of Puerto Rico

The South Coast of Puerto Rico is full of beautiful landscapes, warm people, fascinating attractions and intriguing cities. We’ve spent a month+ in PR and are amazed at how much it has to offer. The island itself is only 110 miles long (west to east) but offers everything from pristine beaches to

Passages: Turks & Caicos to the DR!
